    What if you were a bird, my dear? What would happen then? Would you decide to fly off one day never to return again? Would we all hurt our necks looking up at you to say goodbye? Would the only thing we see be your wings fluttering impatiently against the sky? Or if you were a bird, pe...

    These are tears of sorrow, rage, and God only knows what else. They only fall whenever I feel my brain stop working. Lately, they haven't been round to rear their ugly heads, but I know behind my eyes those tears are surely lurking. And they will fall away, fall away, fall awa...

    Darling, look into the mirror and see what you've become. Look into your own eyes. You've been this way too long. What has happened? What has transpired? You were so proud once, but something's screwed with you're wired. You're the only one who can take you b...

    My Bathtub is my best friend. My Bathtub is my home. Whenever I feel lonely, my Bathtub's where I go. When I think "sanctuary," my Bathtub comes to mind. Strong and sturdy and dependable, there's not a safer place to find. My Bathtub has had my back in times of...

    There can be no regret and no indecision. No time look before you leap. No way of knowing accuracy or precision. Only the two choices that you see. So what can you do when you've gone the wrong way? When you can't retrace your steps or turn back the clock? Sometimes you just have t...

    Skeleton hold me close. You're the only thing I've ever known. If you see me walking down the street with some boy who's all made out of meat, you've my permission to by any means punch him out and sweep me off my feet. Skeleton hold me up. Without you, I would crumble. ...

    Sometimes at night she cries in the light of the moon. She is tired of hiding. All her life has been is just running away. She is so sick of trying. People only want her skin and bones so she hides in the woods all alone....

    Birds in the sky, circle high above her. She's not dead yet, but you wouldn't know to look at her. Lie stranded in a field a couple of days, and see what happens to you. Nothing could be quite so damaging. Nothing could be so cruel. They left her there in the hot summer sun wi...

    No one's there to catch me, but they love to watch me fall. You'd think they never saw a sight that was so beautiful. They all just stand there frozen, every man, woman, and child. They are suspended in that moment, their minds bewildered and beguiled. I catch glimpses of their...

    Oh, one day you will be happy, you will be beautiful, you will be loved. And one day, you might look back and all that's happened in your life might make some sort of sense. But for now... We always talk about how things will be different one day, but that doesn't seem ...

    Mary's got a problem, but Mary's not the problem. The world's got it out for her. When she talks about her troubled life everyone seems to roll their eyes. It's just so pitiful....

    Dear Columbus, Are you off exploring somewhere in the new world? Does it please you to know that we miss you here in Spain? And we all hope you're having a nice time, but it'd be nice to talk to you once in a while. Dear Madonna, How is the little Christ child of yours? I...

    Come to me, my newborn friends. I know your tiny wings are on the mend. Your Mother went in search of food. For a while, she hasn't returned to the brood. Father might be gone and Mother might be lost, but I'll still be here, darlings. They won't take me away from yo...

    We found you somewhere living by the shoreline. You slept under the boardwalk and sold starfish for money. The sun was your friend. You played with him daily, and everyone could tell from your rosy red cheeks. At night, you watched the stars for hours upon hours. It didn't go to ...

    All I can see is water.. All around. My hair is in my eyes and I'm trying drown. The reeds hold my legs so horribly tightly.. With every tug, I'm letting go slightly. Don't pull me out of the water just yet. I'm not fully drowned, I haven't reached my end....

    Somebody fill my cup with an adventure before I burst at the seams from all of this relaxation. It never did appeal to me the way it does to others, but I guess that's what sets me apart from them. I don't want to sit there by the shore all day. I don't want to feel the sa...

    Hold me close like only you can. Love me well with a love that only happens at your hands. Tell me I'm your everything. I don't care if you mean it or not. This mood I'm in has me wanting something and those words will hit the right spot....

    Washed ashore by a wave of adrenaline, I lay in the sweltering sun that is fatigue. It holds me hostage, threatens me if I move so I sit there in silence so bittersweet. Motivation returns after days of rest. I can stand and the rehab begins. I've regained full strength. The tim...

    You stand there mapping it all out and maybe trying to forget while I'm just sort of sitting still stealing the last puff of your cigarette. You're vulnerable, and I can tell that this is your version of hell. But don't drown in your tears. You can hold my hand, my dear. ...

    Ssh... Don't speak You'll just ruin it. Let me have this, This moment of ultimate peace, This moment of sheer wonder, While I'm here on the edge of chaos, Just before the darkness overcomes me, Just before I tumble into the abyss. So do me a favor. Keep quiet....

    Those little children! They hold it well, but they haven't gone nearly as far as we. They don't depend  on this stuff, this bliss quite as fully as me. They never gulp their sorrows down. They only sip lightly. And they float along  a merry river  while giggling brightly....

    It's all I really want when life feels like it's done and I'm barely holding on. I just need the pain to end. There are voices in my mind that are reaching out to find the thing I'm trying leave behind, my potentially deadly friend. But I'll give it 30 minutes f...
